What a fun opportunity speaking with the students of Paton Churdan Community Schools about being a writer and an an author. It was lots of fun. We talked about getting story ideas, how to write, and what they can do to share and publish their work. Of course, we did a little yoga too! Check out our Mannequin Challenge here. These kids nailed it!

Paton-Churdan School Kids Take on the Mannequin Challenge: Yoga Style!

I spent a wonderful morning at the Paton-Churdan School speaking to the students about being a writer and playing some fun yoga games. I hope the students were inspired to continue to try their best in everything they do. I certainly  met and saw amazing kids trying their best when faced with something new.

Be on the lookout in the Jefferson Herald for some fun photos that their photographer took. You can also view our entertaining Mannequin Challenge here. The kids were very excited about this and I was amazed at their focus. Being still isn’t easy, but when you include some balance as well, it is even more challenging! The junior high kids are first in the video, followed by the preschool and elementary.

I would very much appreciate your review here. Reviews help spread the word about Go Go Yoga Kids so others may be introduced to the physical, mental and fun benefits of yoga. If you would still like to purchase a book at the special school rate of $10, please stop in the school office. Go Go Yoga Kids is also available at the Printer’s Box in Jefferson, on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
